Excellent point, re: Al and his home state of TN.

I point out to all those who love blaming everyone ELSE for something (i.e. the folks who still blame Ralph Nader for "losing" the 2000 election for Gore, that if Gore had simply dome what even huge losers Michael Dukakis (MA., 1988) and Walter Mondale (MN., 1984) had done--won their home states--nobody would have been talking about hanging chads or stolen elections b/c Florida wouldn't have mattered one damn bit.

But Al ignored his place of origin b/c by then he had become a know-it-all Washington robo-jerk and figured he didn't need to campaign there, b/c, y'know...how could he POSSIBLY lose?

Nobel peace prize my ass.

Oh, and 10/10/82 the Frost has one of my all time favorite Jeds. Just so this isn't all about big Al. ;-)
